The revolution will be hand delivered
Crofting communities aside, the community right to buy is only of use when a landowner decides to sell. This leaves communities with little scope for manoeuvre when faced with recalcitrant landowners. Or perhaps not. Working on the principle of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em”, a campaign is to be launched tomorrow which will shake things up in the weeks and months ahead.
Apologies for the lack of details. It’s the disadvantage of having a fixed publishing date for Local People Leading – every second Wednesday.
Details of the campaign are embargoed until 01.00 tomorrow, Thursday 27th September.
A website www.landaction.org.uk containing full details of the campaign will go live at that time.
